Grounded for Life

All Apologies - S4-E15

Continuity mistake: During the scene with the family in the living room and Claudia and Lily are sitting on the covered couch, the sheet falls off the top of the couch. In subsequent shots the sheet falls off and goes back on the top through the whole scene.


Show generally

Factual error: In one show, Sean and Claudia are in Las Vegas. Sean is doing well at the craps table and starts showing off. One time he even throws the dice around his back onto the table. However, when players are playing craps, they have to keep the dice above the table at all times. People working at a craps table would not have allowed Sean to do what he did.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the episode where Eddie first gets his blue electric car. He plugs the car into the kitchen with a long red extension cord. When there's a shot of Claudia first coming out of the kitchen to see what's going on, the red cord is gone. The whole kitchen entrance is shown, so the red cord should be visible. Then, when Eddie and Shawn are shown again, the red cord is back on the floor behind them.

Action Mountain High - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Sean breaks down Lily's bedroom door and catapults into the room, there is a poster on Lily's wall across from her door. The poster goes from hanging properly to one corner untaped as the shot changes.

Your Father Should Know (2) - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Claudia states that she was seventeen years old when she first had sex. In the season one episode "Like A Virgin", it was revealed that she was fifteen.

I Didn't Start the Fire - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Claudia states that Eddie has never had a job for as long as she has known him. But in the episode "Don't Fear the Reefer", flashbacks show her hanging out with Eddie and Sean during their pot-smoking days, and also show Eddie working at a pizza parlor.

Oops!...I Did It Again - S2-E22

Plot hole: Lily was vomiting because of the antibiotics she was taking for the infected tattoo. But initially, Sean and Claudia were both puzzled by her being sick. As a teenager, how could she have seen a doctor and been prescribed medicine without a parent knowing?
